The good news:
The ENT's office gathered enough data from the pH probe, even though it fell out a bit early.
The bad news:
The Nexium isn't getting the reflux under complete control. Nolan was showing pH drops while eating (which we saw) and also while he was sleeping.
The revised plan:
Nolan is going to have Zantac added to his medication schedule. Our medication alarm clock is going to work overtime for the little guy. He'll take Nexium 30 minutes before eating breakfast in the morning and again 30 minutes before dinner. He'll take Zantac at 7:00pm and again at 7:00am.
Second verse, same as the first:
Before doing surgery, we need to do another pH probe, to verify the acid reflux is being controlled by the two medications. We will have the pH probe placed on December 2, and will return the box on December 3. They will try to read the information from the probe as quickly as possible.
In the meantime, I am going to think alkaline thoughts. I deeply hope the Zantac helps control all the acid with my little GERDling!
